A town in the middle of the snowy forests. A recently divorced father and his son live together in a small flat after having recently moved to the town. As Christmas is coming closer the plan of the son is to go to his mother but something happens on the way to the station and he misses the last train. Stuck in town he finds a new friend and from there things start rolling.
Films about families with scars and pockmarks work out the best when their problems are believable and this film works that out very well. With each passing day the bonds between the various people are worked out more clearly and become easier to believe. Once the party is finally there all comes together and the ending can only be the way it is. It's not entirely dark, not entirely light, but entirely true and therefore its good.
